My first thought when astronomers began the discussion of declassifying Pluto was “they don’t know who they’re dealing with.” Anyone who has been through a transit of Pluto across their natal planets and seen the devastation and transformation that Pluto inspires understands the awe in which astrologers hold this tiny planet.
